has anyone found a cruise control that will work on a TW200? thanks,magoo.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.
Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.
What kind of cruise control are you looking for? Electronic or Friction Lock Style?
You can easily install a friction lock style cruise control-search web for motorcycle cruise control- you probably will run into---Breakaway, Throttlemeister, Madco, etc.
Electronic Cruise Controls will be quite expensive and will require some installation creativity to set up-since there is no plug and play cruise control made specifically for the TW200.
Here is a link to a supplier of electronic cruise controls for motorcycles: http://www.mccruise.com/MotorCycle-Cruise-Control.html
Also if you like to tinker--- You might find some lawn tractor cruise controls that might work on a TW200-just a thought-might be cheap to get. (ie Kohler engine tractor cruise control).
Just some thoughts -- hope you find some of this helpful.
Hopefully others on this site may be more helpful than my suggestions.
Carefully drill and Tap a 1/4-20 hole in your throttle clamp right beside the grip. Get a nylon 1/4/-20 machine screw and screw it in to hole the throttle open. Do not use aluminum or steel machine screws. The cable is behind there and you will damage it with metal screws, be careful when drilling as well.
If you need a little extra friction to hold the screw in place when it is loosened from the throttle, wrap with Teflon tape then screw it in.
I use one of these, and it's great! http://www.crampbuster.com/ Simple, easy on and off, and works great. Just rest your palm on it and boogey along.
